January poll results

Here are the results of the January poll:

What do you think about the Lord John books and stories?

  • 27.9% - I enjoy them, but I prefer to read about Jamie and Claire.
  • 22.3% - I love them! I can't wait for "Custom of the Army" and SCOTTISH PRISONER.
  • 11.5% - I wish Diana would quit writing about him.
  • 9.9% - They add a lot of depth to his character.
  • 9.2% - I haven't read any of them yet, but I'm planning to.
  • 7.2% - I'm not interested in reading about a gay character.
  • 4.4% - I like seeing a different side of 18th century life than we get in the OUTLANDER books.
  • 4.0% - I started reading them after seeing what a major role he plays in ECHO.
  • 2.4% - I think they're boring.
  • 1.2% - Other

There were 251 votes total. Thanks very much to everyone who participated!

I'm really pleased to see such a large number and variety of responses to this poll. I didn't vote in it myself, but if I had, I would have gone with the plurality on this one. I like Lord John's character, but it took a while for me to be able to understand and appreciate him, and I don't feel the same sort of deep emotional attachment to Lord John as I do to Jamie and Claire.

Please take a moment to vote in this month's poll, which is a reprise of a poll I did back in January 2009, about the upcoming OUTLANDER graphic novel, titled THE EXILE. Now that the book is available for pre-order, and a number of you have had a chance to see the sample artwork, I thought it would be interesting to see to what extent your opinions have changed in the last year. Also, my blog has gained many new readers since January 2009, and I wanted to give those of you who didn't vote in the earlier poll a chance to express your opinions, too. <g>
